Leaked Kindle Pre-Sale Figures, Fire Outsells Touch 10:1

Just in case you haven't seen it: http://cultofandroid.com/257/leaked-...pad-exclusive/

... Kindle Fire is shaping up to be the biggest tablet launch ever… These leaked shoots show that orders for Amazon’s Android-based tablet are racking up at an average rate of over 2,000 units per hour, or over 50,000 per day.

In the five days since Amazon put the Kindle Fire up on their official site, over 250,000 tablets have been preordered.

Amazon is stoking up the press beautifully with the Fire. Zero leaks about Kindle sales numbers for 4 years, and already a "leak" for their first tablet pre-sales?
Genius.

Maybe it really is a leak, if they don't usually do it.

Wouldn't surprise me. I think Amazon has scores of people whose only job is to carefully manage their media presence. They always seem to be up to something.

While I am not currently interested in the tablet, I am glad to see them doing well. The more they sell the more people they will tie into their content delivery, which in turn will incentivize them to keep the costs of hardware low. I do think we'll see "free" basic Kindles within a year or two (i.e., free with some sort of content agreement).

Would like to see the sales figure for the Basic Kindle 4... Unfortunately not reported in the article.

Not a great believer in e-ink touch!

CiAo!

It's kind of suspicious considering that blog has only been around for a little more than a month (started in September...) You wouldn't think it would have that type of contacts...

I believe it's run by the same people as Cult of Mac, which has been around for ages.

Still, I'd take any rumor with a golf-ball sized grain of salt. Whoever is releasing such numbers, whether they be fake or real, is doing it for their own/their company's benefit rather than ours.
